Looking over several hundred of these in logs, all used the pattern

We saw this same campaign today. Also saw a recon event yesterday where many people received emails with varied literature but no links or attachments. The same people received the .pdf email today.

@Kari Kuehneman
Same recon event a day earlier.

Can't confirm if the targets match up nicely here though.

Could have just been their first try was broken and didn't include a payload, which happens also.
